Quote of the Day

"When you know who you are; when your mission is clear and you burn with the inner fire of unbreakable will; no cold can touch your heart; no deluge can dampen your purpose. You know that you are alive."

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"

Martin Luther King, Jr.


In January, we honored Martin Luther King, Jr. setting aside time to ponder his life and legacy.   We remember how hard he fought for civil rights – a struggle which began many centuries ago.  At the heart of this struggle is the fact that many students still do not have equal access to a quality education.  National School Choice Week was also celebrated in the last week of January.  These events demonstrate the desire for a quality education continues to grow nationwide. 
 

It’s the reason why the ardent spirit of Clayton Valley Charter High School prospers in our community.  Through united effort, we banded together to support a better school bringing Clayton Valley out of its complacency of underachievement, decline in facilities, low staff morale and student apathy.  Through collective hard work and persistence, a remarkable transformation has occurred with immediate and astonishing results that continue to this very day.
 

Our community is galvanized by a common vision – one embraced by staff, parents and students alike.  We transformed our school culture to reflect a framework of rigor, relevance, and relationships.  This philosophy coupled with innovative teaching and support of our staff garnered CVCHS with regional and national recognition.  Our school’s top academic achievement gains ranked among the highest in the state.
 

This year, CVCHS received over 1,000 student applications during our open enrollment period.  It’s amazing to witness the commitment of parents who want the best for their children and the great lengths they will travel for a world-class education right here in Concord.   This is a new record for our charter school and is a testament that parent choice really matters. 
 

And it shows as evident during our annual Public Random Drawing.  Held in our multi-use room, families from around the East Bay region gathered to hear their child’s name called during the 2-hour lottery session.  Electricity was in the air as we witnessed the excitement of students jumping out of their seats and being applauded by the audience.  It was like winning the “lottery!”  It’s the first time they realize that they are now part of the Ugly Eagle family. 
 

CVCHS thrives today because we are unique and are allowed the freedom to be more innovative while being held accountable for advancing student achievement.  We were created to help improve our region’s public school system and provide parents with yet another school option to better meet their children’s needs.  We embrace the belief that good teachers make good schools and we support our staff with numerous professional development opportunities to enhance their instruction.    We offer hope to many families who desire a quality education in a safe and supportive school environment. 
 

As Executive Director, I strongly believe that all children should have the right to achieve at the highest levels, which starts with a great education.  Here at CVCHS, we are cultivating world-class scholars tapping into their intrinsic powers of respect, determination, excellence and family.
 

I’m hopeful that we take time to remember MLK not just on January 18th, but everyday to reflect how far we’ve come but also about how far we still need to go to impact the lives of every student.
 

MLK had a dream but also worked hard to make that dream a reality.  We welcome our entire community to join us and continue his great work by advancing opportunities for all students.
 

In Your Service,

David Linzey
Executive Director

Attendance
and ADA

School funding comes directly from student's daily attendance.  When they attend school, even for a portion of the day, we receive full funding for that day.  When your student does not attend at all, we receive no funding at all.  Since 2007, California funding for public education (which includes charter schools) has been reduced significantly causing a tremendous strain on schools to offer educational programs.  We need each student here everyday, even if it is only for a part of the day (after doctor's and dentist appointments, etc.).  CVCHS can actually increase our state funding if every parent does their best to get their students to school everyday.  Thanks!
